In addition to the enormous benefit to the charity, volunteering also offers opportunities for our volunteers to benefit in many different ways. Whether it is enjoying social contact, developing new and existing skills or gaining confidence, there are many ways in which volunteering can be mutually beneficial to people at all different stages in life.
Perhaps you're currently not working
Maybe you’ve just graduated, taken a career break, been made redundant or currently furloughed. Volunteering can help you gain valuable new experience and the confidence to enter the job market whilst learning new or developing existing skills .
You might be keen to meet new people
Volunteering can be a very social activity and is a great way to make new friends.
You might be someone who experienced our service...
...perhaps as a patient or a relative of someone we cared for. We’d love to welcome you as a volunteer who understands what we are about, although for certain voluntary roles, experience tells us that it's best not to start straight away.
You might be a student...
...looking to gain work experience or carry out voluntary work as part of an award or for your University applications.
You might be a professional in your field...
...and have a specialist skill that you’d like to put to good use for a local charity. We often have specific projects that need specialist knowledge and we may be able to match you up.
Perhaps you’ve recently retired...
...and miss the social buzz of working or a certain structure to your day. You might enjoy having a regular commitment in a busy, friendly environment.
